Tombstone of Elizabeth Hammons Henderson and King L. Henderson, Hogan cemetery, Groesbeck, Limestone County, Texas — see Find a Grave memorial page of Elizabeth Hammons Henderson, Hogan cemetery, Groesbeck, Limestone County, Texas, created by Alford, maintained by Amanda Canion, with a tombstone photo by Alford

I’ve now found that Elizabeth Hammons Henderson was born 20 July 1808. This date of birth is recorded on her tombstone in Hogan cemetery, Groesbeck, Limestone County, Texas.[1] Census data report Tennessee as Elizabeth’s birthplace, and since we know that her parents moved from Wayne County, Kentucky, to Warren County, Tennessee, ain 1807, she would likely have been born in the latter county.

Elizabeth’s tombstone states that she died 13 July 1860, evidently in Limestone County, Texas. King L. Henderson’s tombstone indicates that he was born 20 May 1804 and died 16 August 1860.[2] He is buried in Hogan cemetery along with wife Elizabeth; the couple has a shared tombstone. The Find a Grave memorial page says that the couple married in or about 1830 in Tennessee. Note that Elizabeth’s family had moved from Warren County, Tennessee, to Jackson County, Alabama, by 1820, and King Henderson is on the 1830 federal census in the latter county.

According to their Find a Grave memorial pages, King L. and Elizabeth Hammons Henderson had the following children:

a. Mary Ann Henderson (1830-1881), married Evans.
